It was a disappointing result for United on Saturday but with Jefferson Louis scoring it should be recognised that his goal means he has now broken a 50 year-old record held by club legendary striker Tony Jacques.

Season 1967/68 saw Tony Jacques score in the first five league games of the season. These were away to Gravesend & Northfleet (where he got a hat-trick on opening day in a 7-0 win), followed by a goal in a 3-2 loss away to Folkestone Town, a goal in a 3-1 win at home to Bexley United, the only goal for United in a 1-1 draw away to Ramsgate Athletic and finally a goal in a 3-2 home win over Merthyr Tydfil.

But now 50 years to the day that Jacques set that club record on Saturday 9th September 1967 by scoring against Merthyr Tydfil, it was broken on Saturday when Jefferson Louis scored against Frome as he has now scored in the first six league games of this season.

Jefferson has scored one goal in each of the games at home to Dorchester Town, away to Chesham United, away to Hitchin Town, at home to Bishops Stortford, away to Dunstable Town and finally on Saturday at home to Frome Town.

The photo above shows Jefferson Louis being briefed and congratulated on his record by on the left as you look Banbury United Chairman Ronnie Johnson and on the right manager Mike Ford.
